The Bamboo Fun combines multi-touch functionality and pen tablet technology in a single device! A simple tap of the finger will select an icon or open a menu and with two fingers you can easily zoom and rotate photos or scroll down.

Styled in silver, Bamboo Fun allows you to create natural-looking paintings or drawings. You can retouch your photos with the pen - or personalise your documents using handwritten notes, sketches or doodles.

That's not all! A variety of useful Bamboo Mini software applications inside Bamboo Dock are kept ready for download - for example Animator: A handy tool for sketching animations. Draw sheet by sheet with your Bamboo Fun and then bring your drawings to life. You can even export your image series to use them in any other application.

Cushion grip

A special rubber material is used which fits gently into the fingers, greatly reducing the load which the fingers bear.
